Simple Truth

Simplifying Your Summer Picnic

As we move deeper into the heart of summer, many of us are spending as much time as possible outdoors, enjoying the simple pleasures of the season.  What could be simpler than a summer picnic? Pack up some fresh food, grab your loved ones, and find a tranquil corner of the world where you can roll out that iconic checkered blanket. Simple Truth® is now offering a variety of pre-sliced deli meats and cheeses to make your picnic menu quick to prepare and naturally delicious. Carnivores can choose from oven-roasted turkey and chicken, smoked turkey and ham, and top round roast beef. As always, no of antibiotics or added nitrates/nitrites! Cheese lovers will be delighted by sliced Muenster, provolone, and Gouda. The possibilities are endless, but we’ve outlined a few ideas to get your picnic started!

  • Save your carbohydrates for a slice of summer watermelon by ditching the sandwich bread and opting for a roll-up instead. Start with a slice of provolone cheese, then lay on 1-2 slices of top round roast beef, and finally, place a few thinly sliced red and green peppers and a dash of Simple Truth Organic® Goddess Dressing in the center. Roll up and secure with a toothpick for a portable picnic delight! Feel free to experiment with any combination of meats and cheeses to suit your taste buds.
  • Simplify healthy habits by using Simple Truth® deli meats as a protein punch in your next salad. Once you have reached your picnic spot, toss a generous handful of Simple Truth Organic® Spring Mix with one or two pours of Simple Truth Organic® Balsamic Vinaigrette. Top your dressed greens with Simple Truth Organic® Sunflower Seeds, apple slices, and roughly chopped Simple Truth® Hickory-Smoked Turkey for a quick summer salad.
  • Maybe you’re hosting an outdoor picnic for several guests with differing food preferences. Relying on the convenience and fresh taste of our new pre-sliced meats and cheeses, you can arrange several varieties on an attractive platter to create a DIY picnic buffet.  Provide guests with Simple Truth® Multigrain Crackers, whole-grain bread, Simple Truth Organic® Yellow Mustard, and fresh vegetable offerings for an impressive spread that will make your picnic the talk of the town!

Which convenient, natural meat or cheese will we find in your picnic basket this summer?
